"The Man From Nowhere"
In Korea's highest grossing film of 2010 and winner of multiple awards at the Korean Film Awards, as well as other Awards & Festivals, "The Man From Nowhere" is an absolutely intriguing, powerful, gripping and highly entertaining thriller that never leaves you with a dull moment. The action and fight scenes in the film are absolute perfection. The acting, story and the unfolding of the films plot is top notch and by the conclusion of the film "The Man From Nowhere" leaves you completely satisfied and more thoroughly entertained than most movies in the last couple of years. Bon Win (Mother) is perfection in his role as Cha Tae-Sik as you always find yourself rooting & pulling for him to the very end. And Kim Sae-ron as So-mi is a perfect example of child actors with great talent and is sure to be one of Korea's biggest leading ladies in the future. And although there is no dull moment in the entire film, the notorious "Knife Fight" scene is as Flixster says: "The best cinematic  knife fight to hit screens in years", and that's the absolute truth. The "Knife Fight" scene is absolutely ruthless and is guaranteed to leave you with a big grin on your face. To conclude, "The Man From Nowhere" is not to be missed by true lovers of film and is more than worth your money.
Score: 5/5

Scream 4
It's Been 11 years since the last "Scream" movie and Wes Craven wastes little time bringing the nostalgic feeling to the game as the opening scene, as well as many other moments, are reminiscent and flat out throwbacks to the original first film. Many are saying "Scream 4" is the best film in the series since the original, and it's hard to disagree once seeing it with an audience. The kills are much more simplistic than most of the over the top kills horror fans have gotten used to in recent years, but they're just as brutal as any kills in recent horror history. It's also clear from the very beginning that this is also probably the Darkest film in the series. For those die hard scream fans that had a bad taste left in their mouth from "Scream 3", this installment more than makes up for it. As with every Scream film, it's all about figuring out who the killer is this time around, and once revealed, turns out to be a good solid reveal. "Scream 4" is a great Welcome Back to the Scream franchise and shows that this series of one of the most popular slasher flicks still has plenty of life left in it. If "Scream 5" happens, we'll be there happily and could only hope for a film as good as "Scream 4".
Score: 4.4/5

  1. I think that they should not even think about remaking "LOGANS RUN"...Unless it is written well
